    Well it was time that the law enforcement agencies did something against this. Operation is highly welcomed but Collateral Damage must be avoided!

    Nabeel Gabol !Chief sponsor of the liyari & ghanchi para Gangs,

    Area police station beat is 1 million a week from cabin & khokhas, kidnapping for ransom is a seperate issue, which is in 8 figures to begin with. drugs arms & target murder against a fee PLUS Arms on RENT grab grand money, which can not be counted.

    how would a sitting MPA will let his area "fumigated"???

    I was reading in Daily Times that the police is colluding with one gang to beat the hell outa another gang. Typical Pakistani police thing.
    One way to rid Karachi of crimes is to get rid of police. This institution promotes, collaborates, practices all kinds of criminal activities.
